Bulawayo: Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed tried his hand at bowling in his international career when he bowled a couple of overs against Zimbabwe in the fifth ODI here on Sunday.

Sarfraz, who is a wicketkeeper-batsman, gave the keeping duties to Fakhar Zaman during his short spell.

 

The 31-year-old attempted in doing an MS Dhoni, as his bowling action was similar to Dhoni’s.

Dhoni has managed to take just one wicket in his short bowling stint, that coming during India’s ICC Champions Trophy match against West Indies in 2009.

Imam-ul-Haq smashed his third century of the series and Fakhar Zaman became the fastest batsman to complete 1,000 runs in ODIs as Pakistan swept Zimbabwe 5-0 with a 131-run win in the fifth one-day international on Sunday.

Imam hit 110 off 105 balls, and Zaman scored 85 off 83 to reach the 1,000 mark in only his 18th ODI, with Pakistan posting yet another strong total of 364-4 after choosing to bat.

 

Zaman improved on the record of 21 matches which was shared by five cricketers, including his teammate Babar Azam, who made 106 off 76.

Zimbabwe's top-order batsmen finally found some sort of form and finished on 233-4 - their best total in the series.

Ryan Murray, dropped twice, top scored with 47 off 70 and Peter Moor remained unbeaten on a 54-ball 44.

In a lopsided series, Pakistan won two matches by nine wickets and two by more than 200 runs before wrapping up the series on Sunday.
